The Right Start Puppy Training Program

Between 8 weeks and 16 weeks old, is the most critical developmental time in a puppy’s life.
During this time puppies are hard-wired to absorb and evaluate the world and all the experiences it offers.

Our Comprehensive Puppy Training Program.

  • Group Puppy Preschool
  • Group Basic Obedience plus Canine Good Citizen
  • 3 Month Access to our Video Training Library
  • Interactive Feeding Toy to Stimulate Problem Solving
  • Tools to Help With Chewing and Teething.

The Right Start Program is the best choice for a well-rounded education for your puppy.
Begin with Puppy Preschool Classes, then graduate into Basic Obedience Classes.

Why Puppy Training is Essential

Teach Your Dog Socialization Skills

Puppy Preschool is the first phase of the Right Start Puppy Training Program.
The focus of Puppy Preschool is to provide safe and supervised opportunities for your new puppy to learn important socialization and interaction skills.

Puppy training helps you learn to communicate with your puppy effectively and also establishes constructive behavior patterns before bad ones develop.

We introduce learning games and outdoor time to help stimulate your puppies problem solving abilities.

In addition to classroom time, you will have 3 months access to our video library. These video lessons will guide you through numerous bonus exercises for exposure and learning to practice at home.

Puppy Preschool has “rolling enrollment,” which means you can join the class and begin your six week series of classes at any time.
Your puppy must have received their -first- round of vaccinations, including Canine Cough, to attend class

Building on the Puppy Skills

Foundation Basic Obedience is the second phase of the Right Start Puppy Training Program.

Your puppy’s learning journey continues by moving the focus from social interaction to more impressive and necessary “life skills.”

During Foundation Basic Obedience, your puppy will:

  • Develop strong listening skills and focused attention
  • Learn to walk on leash without pulling
  • Not jump on people unless asked
  • Remain in place until released
  • And more toward the goal of a “reliable companion.”

Puppy Training Questions and Answers
How early should I start my puppy's training?

Just like with a child, training your puppy to behave from the very beginning is easier than correcting bad behavior later in life. The best time to start training a puppy is between 8 and 16 weeks of age. This is a critical development period in their life when they are hardwired to absorb the things around them.

How long will it take to train my puppy?

We highly suggest enrolling in our Right Stuff Program. This includes Puppy Preschool and Basic Obedience. Both classes combined will provide a solid foundation for your new puppy.
